Women Lead the Way
Weinstein, Margery
Training, v47 n4 p16-18, 20 Jul-Aug 2010
Female corporate leaders are becoming more common, but that does not mean it was a snap for them to get there. Much has been said about the hard road faced by women who seek top spots in corporate America. Many point out, for instance, that women executives still often are paid less than their male counterparts, and that they face stereotypes, such as not being tough enough for the job, that the weakest-seeming man does not. But despite these gripes, women are making it to the top of companies. This is due in part to their perseverance, and in part to development programs that gave them a push in the right direction. In this article, Cbeyond (a managed services provider in Atlanta, Georgia) and Western Summit Constructors Inc. (headquartered in Denver, Colorado) describe how women's leadership development is promoted within their companies.
